RED BANK, NJ: Named as a reference when earthworms start making their appearance in early spring, the Worm Moon started to rise over Riverview Hospital at about 7:20pm.

Called a “Supermoon” because the moon tracks closer to the earth than an average full moon.

If the weather cooperates, it appears larger and brighter than usual, especially as it comes up over the horizon.
